Pole Star is pleased to be attending and sponsoring this year’s TXF Geneva , in partnership with Dow Jones Risk & Compliance.

TXF Geneva started as a progressive roundtable in a restaurant in 2016. Just three years later, it is currently one of TXF’s biggest conferences, dedicated to European commodity trade finance professionals.

The event will feature debates on industry issues, case studies, awards, and a briefing breakfast.

Pole Star and Dow Jones will be giving a talk to attendees following the Digitisation Stream at 1:45 pm titled: RegTech Revolution: Navigating Sanctions & Compliance in Maritime Trade. Simon Ring, Pole Star's Global Head of Financial Markets Compliance, and Samantha Wolreich, Director of Special Lists for Dow Jones Risk & Compliance will be speaking.  

The discussion will look at whether trade finance team are adequately managing their export control risks with regards to maritime trade.

Trade finance teams know that regulatory risk can be associated with various aspects of a transaction: the goods being traded, the buyers and sellers, the cities and ports along the shipping route and the shipping vessels themselves. Now, it is more important than ever to employ heightened sanctions screening practices. We will be discussing the current regulatory landscape, the increased focus on the supply chain, the impact on internal risk management processes, and the importance of of digitisation and cross-industry collaboration when it comes to properly implementing large-scale risk management solutions
